    The title. Has anyone had any luck with gaming that way? I'm thinking of giving it a try on rpol.net as that one looks solid and is free.

    Alternatively I saw a site advertising "professional" DMs but it requires you to pay per session played. For $15 a session it had better be the best game I've ever played in. Anyone tried those?

    Roll20.net has a game called Knights of the Written Word, which is a multi-system text-only (I think they use tokens and maps, but no voice/video) hub. Find games and players there.

    I play on a private ProBoards. It's a pretty basic PbP forum, much like that section of this forum. Unlike this forum, it's a much smaller, personal group of players. Certainly, people tend to ghost, and games do fall apart, but it has a strong "core" group of players that means most games do last.

    I have played in IRC for many years. We tend to use Discord now, but it amounts to the same thing. It tends to promote more in-character “acting,” especially if you use different channels for IC and OOC chat. Dice rolling bots in the OOC channel work quite well.

    I have found that play-by-post sadly tends to eventually die out as players keep putting off responding.

    Most of my gaming these days is either here, RPoL or Myth-Weavers.
